The fire broke out about 10:00 p.m, crews had it under control about 2:30 this morning and are now watching for flare ups.

Company reps say they will contact employees today about the situation.

The more than 30-year-old business supplies uniforms to more than 2,500 high school teams, and several college teams.

No one was injured in the fire, the cause is under investigations.
